Country haven provides entirely mobile vet services to NoCo

Sometimes cats and dogs are afraid to go to the vet, so Dr. Jessica Albright that she should become mobile with her veterinary services.

Courtesy – Dr. Jessica Albright sees a puppy patient through her Country Haven Veterinary Service, which provides mobile pet care to Berthoud and the surrounding communities.

For this reason, and to keep her clients from leaving their homes or leaving their pets in the office for care, Albright began Country Haven Veterinary Services in June 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I wanted it to be a sanctuary for animals that are afraid to go into brick and mortar,” said Albright, veterinarian and co-owner of the Loveland-based practice with Francisco Ramos of Greeley. “It’s nicer and easier for them and their pets to be cared for at home.”

Albright operates her clinic entirely from a La Boit mobile medical vehicle. She decided not to open an office after the pandemic as her clients like the mobile option, especially if they work from home or have pets who don’t like going to the vet. When the animals are afraid to enter her mobile unit, she conducts the examinations in the customer’s home or yard and she lets the customers stay with their animals at all times to reassure them.

“It’s so much easier for the animal,” Albright said. “There are no other animals around. It is a nice individual time for this patient.”

Albright includes the word “country” in her company’s name because of her practice on animals large and small.

“It seemed just right for my practice,” Albright said.

Albright offers a full range of veterinary services other than hospitalization for small animals, primarily cats and dogs, as well as small mammals such as guinea pigs, hamsters and rabbits. The list of services includes wellness examinations, vaccinations, in-house blood tests, X-rays, abdominal ultrasound, laser therapy, operations as well as tooth cleaning and tooth extractions.

For large animals such as farm animals such as horses, cows, goats, llamas, alpacas, and chickens, Albright conducts health screenings, provides vaccinations, performs blood work, and treats equine dental swimmers.

“I often go the extra mile for my clients and patients,” Albright said. “I’m trying to give them the best medicine possible.”

Albright’s mobile unit is 26 feet long and looks like an RV, she said. Inside is a treatment table and countertops with storage above, a workstation, laboratory area and operating room to the rear, and three kennels.

“It looks like a small compact clinic,” Albright said.

Albright covers northern Colorado, including Berthoud, Loveland and Fort Collins, and the area from Brighton to Carr and along the Front Range to the US 85 corridor. She treats 50 to 90 patients a week, which depends on the number of surgeries she has on her schedule. She hopes to add one or two vets to her staff, which currently consists of a board-certified vet technician, a technician and a receptionist.

Albright received his doctorate in veterinary medicine from Colorado State University in 2015, then worked for two clinics in Nevada for two years and in a general practice in Firestone for three years. She also provided additional help at Royal Vista Veterinary Specialists in Windsor.
